The CW Planning A “Dynasty” Reboot

The CW is reportedly developing a reboot of classic 1980s soap “Dynasty” which CBS Television Studios and Fake Empire will produce.

The new series will be told primarily through the perspectives of two female characters locked in conflict. The first is Fallon Carrington, daughter of billionaire Blake Carrington. The second is Cristal, a Hispanic woman who is Fallon’s soon-to-be stepmother.

Currently in script development, the project will be handled by executive producers and writers Josh Schwartz (“The O.C.”), Stephanie Savage (“Gossip girl”) and Sallie Patrick (“Revenge”). Esther Shapiro and Richard Shapiro, creators of the original Aaron Spelling-produced series, are also serving as executive producers.
